    Today Thanksgiving will be celebrated all over the USA. Thanksgiving as an occasion is truly American. Having family in America I have grown to understand how important it is to America as a nation.
    We're getting ready to re-open next week - all being well.  We're also getting the shop all ready for Christmas. 

    You'd think that with the physical shop closed I'd be having a nice rest!  Not so I'm afraid - this last few weeks have been manic, in a good way :)

    I've been getting stuck into the online side of things and working hard on building up our online store so you can see as much of our range as possible - we're all doing our Christmas shopping a bit differently this year!

    It's good to be busy, and I've managed to get so much more online now than we used to have, so I thought you'd like to see some of the new designers I've been working on.
